End of support doesn’t have to mean end of security


The End of Support (EOS) of major enterprise platforms like Windows XP, Windows 2000 Server, and Windows Server 2003 are a major challenge for organizations running mission-critical applications necessary for day-to-day business.

This white paper reviews the risks facing organizations running end of life (EOL) platforms like Windows Server 2003 and the options available to them to address those risks. It specifically focuses on how Trend Micro™ Deep Security™ can provide protection for EOL platforms.

Delivered by the market leader in server security, Deep Security includes a comprehensive set of security controls that can be used to protect platforms like Windows 2003 that are at or past EOL, enabling organizations to plan and execute a transition that makes sense to the business. It also lets organizations avoid expensive custom support agreements for security patches from Microsoft and helps to extend the life of legacy systems and applications.

Deep Security can also help to provide a smooth migration path to securing systems beyond Windows 2003, including Windows 2012, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and other leading cloud providers.
